Chinese Chicken & Corn Soup
With ingredients like soy sauce, fresh ginger, and sesame oil, this isn't an ordinary chicken soup. It's a Chinese version that's super quick to make and delicious.
For even faster preparation, purchase a rotisserie chicken.
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high. Add leeks, chile, ginger, and garlic; sauté until leeks are softened, 3 minutes.
Deglaze pan with sherry, stirring until evaporated, 2 minutes. Add broth, corn kernels, chicken, and cream-style corn; bring to a boil.
Whisk together soy sauce and cornstarch; stir into soup mixture. Simmer until thickened, 5 minutes.
Add peas and cook until crisp-tender, 1–2 minutes. Stir in vinegar and sesame oil. Season soup with black pepper.
Garnish servings of soup with scallions and cilantro leaves.
